Fall Retreats

Fall Retreats

We are excited to once again offer High School FALL CAMP this year! Retreats provide an opportunity to go deeper with God, grow closer as a group, and make memories and relationships that last a lifetime. This will be a weekend you and your friends won’t want to miss.


Middle School & Pre-TEEN kids has all the fun of Snow Camp without the cold and snow.  We’ve designed this retreat with your Middle Schooler in mind, creating an environment where they will grow closer to God, closer to one another, and closer to great mentors who will help them continue to grow.
